Grand Italianate-Style Home in Philadelphia
This large Philadelphia home offers the best of both worlds: It’s loaded with historical charm but is located in close proximity to the heart of the city — and as a bonus, it’s in Chestnut Hill, one of the city’s most exclusive and desirable neighborhoods. It’s like having your own charming — and very spacious — old-time retreat in the middle of an exciting city.

The master suite includes a sitting room where you can enjoy lots of natural sunlight, plus a light-filled tile bathroom with double sinks and lots of storage. The home also has a gourmet kitchen, office, in-law suite and lounge/den with fireplace. Outside, you can relax on the wisteria-draped flagstone terrace surrounded by lush gardens.
